Totally agree. The potential of this forum is to bring people together around the music. Also, keep in mind that the GD and their organization are/were a pretty odd bunch of folks with a tradition of tolerance.

Perhaps the simplest way to put it is thus:

This is an open FORUM--literally a place to express opinions. We must learn to agree to disagree. You can't expect everyone to like everyone else, nor can you expect perfect behavior--whatever that means to you.

No one is perfect, least of all me. Accept that. The disharmony comes as much if not more from the outcries as from the initial posts.

The "you piss me off" thing underscores the nature of the beast. Hell, even I piss my own self off sometimes.

Such is life. And you know what? If we all agreed on everything, life would become boring.

I don't say let's all have a group hug and get along. I say express yourself by either skipping over a post or by politely expressing yourself. Going over the top just isn't worth it.

Meanwhile: listen to that Good Lovin from 4-26-71. The jam is every bit as good as the Alligator_GDTRFB from the 29th.

Dammit.

Well said! I can't believe the hostility I've received in here, I know the times are difficult but those who have been exposed to a Little Light must be the bearers of that peace and not give into our ignorance and self delusion.

I stepped away to get some air and I am not going backwards to read any dirt. Ghost of Pig is right on in my book. Let cooler
Heads prevail.

Let us treat others as we would like to be treated.

Actually, I was going to suggest that we take every man, woman, and child who has ever left a post that was inappropriate, politically incorrect, anti-dead, mean, pronograph, foul, not funny, childish, not ptoofread, or otherwise subject to anyone's scorn, disbelief, or disagreement, and flog the fool out of them. That would be about all of us.

Let me be the first in line and get it out of the way.

Next.

And SDH, I know you love it, but only one to a customer.

'pronograph'? 'ptoofread'?

I think you'd better take your sorry self out to the woodshed, touch your toes and await Dr Hollow's pleasure.

You're right GOP. Enough of the drama already! Too many truly knowledgeable people have departed. Too many people taking comments personally, acting with disrespect and/or an air of superiority. Just to hope everyone will get over themselves and come to understand the "Golden Rule" works really well.

Fuck, ghost, you're not perfect?

Then just who the hell am I supposed to look up to as role model? Man, talk about a bubble getting popped.
